Field Seminar: Mountain Botany & Ecology (FULL)
July 23, 2021 @ 6:45 pm – July 25, 2021 @ 3:00 pm
In this seminar we will explore the Mono Basin’s varied plant communities, from the shore of Mono Lake to the forests and meadows at the high elevations of Lee Vining Canyon. We’ll learn the basics of flower and plant anatomy and how to use a plant key, discuss soils and geology, and examine the adaptations that enable plants to tolerate the extremes of mountain environments. Michèle Slaton is an Ecologist with the US Forest Service and has lived in the Eastern Sierra since She has worked as a botanist in Colorado, Death Valley National Park, and the Inyo National Forest.
